"They took our concepts for a new brand and turned them into a reality.""Jordis with Stellen Design is a fantastic designer. Not only did she design our website, but she created an entire look for our new branded service, including logo, social media graphics, business cards, and other branded materials. I highly recommend her for any graphic and web design."
"Stellen Design was able to actually put my ideas and jumbled thoughts on paper.""It's difficult to find people that you trust their work, value their input, and can keep you in check to some degree and I don’t have to micromanage. The Stellen Design team was able to take direction as well as have incredible input to mold the brand into what we have now."
